Government Agencies Need to Rethink How They Provide Fast and Reliable—Yet Secure—Access to Remote Users.
Covid-19 and the resulting fallout has laid bare the inefficiencies of government and a failure to address these issues with existing digital transformation initiatives, according to a new report published by Gartner. These inefficiencies, the report said, is undermining the productivity of the federal workforce at a time when agencies dealing with the pandemic, the government response, and economic recovery need to react quickly to fast-changing conditions with organizational agility.
In October 2018, Gartner released a report on remote browser isolation. It ruffled feathers a bit throughout the cybersecurity industry by suggesting that enterprises can no longer assume that their traditional detect-and-respond security strategy was enough to stop all web-based malware attacks. Analyst Neil MacDonald argued that enterprises should stop trying to detect every attack and instead focus on “containing the ability of the attacker to cause damage and reduce the surface area for attack.”
Secure Web Access
If you find it challenging to prioritize which security innovations to implement this year, this latest Gartner report can help. It names Menlo Security as a 2017 Cool Vendor for Security for Mid-Size Enterprise, and explains how any resource-constrained IT team can use browser isolation to reduce exposure to malware and phishing attacks.
You may have seen that Gartner has recently identified Remote Browsing/Isolation as one of its top 10 security technologies for 2016. With our previously announced partnership with Check Point, Menlo Security makes it simple to add this game-changing technology to an existing Check Point solution to eliminate malware and risky Web content.
Why Add Isolation?
With one-fifth of the world’s top 1 million web sites known to be running outdated and vulnerable software, it’s inevitable that end users are at risk.
The Menlo Security Isolation Platform (MSIP) uses patent-pending Adaptive Clientless Rendering™ (ACR) technology to deliver a malware-free rendering of the user's isolated session to their native browser, providing a safe and transparent user experience.
